Microsoft Edge Developer

Hi, are you a web developer or designer?

“No, I just want to share feedback on Microsoft Edge.”

Please use the Feedback Hub (requires Windows 10) to submit your feedback in the Microsoft Edge category. This site is for web developer and designer feedback only. Other feedback will be closed without action.

“Yes, I’m a web developer or designer with feedback for the Microsoft Edge platform.”

Great! This site is where the Microsoft Edge team collects feature requests from the web developer and designer community in the categories listed to the right. For bugs on existing features, please log an issue on the Issue Tracker.

Your feedback will help us with planning and to better understand how web developers and designers are using the platform. Top standards-based feature requests will also be copied over to status.microsoftedge.com, where you can track its development status.

For the most actionable feedback, please search and up vote for existing suggestions before submitting a new suggestion, and create a separate suggestion per idea. Note that off topic or inappropriate suggestions may be moderated. The Microsoft Edge team will use suggestions as an important input, but there are several additional factors that inform the final roadmap.

A note from our lawyers: Please do not send any novel or patentable ideas, copyrighted materials, samples or demos which you do not want to grant a license to Microsoft. See the Terms of Service for more information.

How can we improve the Microsoft Edge developer experience?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

    • Aggressively promote the replacement of HTTP with HTTPS

      The video linked below makes it very clear on why HTTPS should always be used instead of HTTP.
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_BNIkw4Ao9w

      Currently, all that happens in Microsoft Edge when you connect to a web page through HTTP is that a "🛈" icon appears in the address bar. Since the web page still works, there is little pressure on web developers to drop support of HTTP in favour of using HTTPS. In essence, by treating HTTP almost identically to HTTPS in Microsoft Edge, Microsoft is not doing its part in promoting a safer, more secure, privacy-respecting Internet.

      Microsoft should be a leader—more aggressive…

        • Provide support for Trusted Sites

          As a corporate user of Win10 with 10,000 users we see very poor adoption of the Edge browser. One of the key reasons for this is that many web apps/portals used by staff require permissions from the Trusted Sites zone which Edge does not support. As a result, these apps do not work correctly and the userbase is abandoning Edge in droves in preference of Chrome as the preferred browser. Microsoft needs to introduce support of the Trusted Sites zone into Edge.

            Edge does not seem to support basic authentication for .PDF file types. Works fine for .htm and .html which prompt for credentials but PDF does not prompt

                • Only Allow AppCache over HTTPS

                  AppCache should be removed from insecure contexts. Since AppCache allows offline and persistent access to an origin, this can be an XSS attack vector that can be exploited

                  • Update documentation on U2F support in Chrome, Opera and Firefox

                    The website wrongly states that Chrome, Opera, and Firefox do not support U2F, which is wrong. In the case of Chrome, it's been implemented for several years. In fact, Edge is the only major browser that does not support this. Please update the docs to reflect this.

                      • Block Cross-Origin <a download>

                        While Microsoft Edge mitigates the impact of cross-origin downloads by changing the file extension, it is still a risk and the presence of the download attribute on anchor elements with cross-origin attributes should still be ignored

                          • Include TLS security. Most websites require it now, so I have had to stop using Microsoft edge for web browsing.

                            Include TLS security in Microsoft Edge. I have had to install Google Chrome to use the Internet as almost all sites now require TLS security to visit or view.

                            • Write Edge in managed code

                              I know you've tried to GC the native code, but it's not enough.

                              There are still UAF bugs. There are still type bugs. It's time to put an end to them once and for all. Write in managed code. We know that Microsoft can create environments that are type safe; it's time to actually use one.

                                • Support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT

                                  TLS 1.3, the next version of security protocol for private and authenticated communication, is in the final phase of specification.
                                  Cloudflare already supports it, Chrome 56 plans to support it January 2017 and Firefox in March 2017.
                                  Edge should not stay behind and support TLS 1.3 with 1-RTT as well, ideally in the upcoming Creator's Update already.

                                  • Add a new flag allow-top-navigation-with-gesture

                                    An already established standard (https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/browsers.html#attr-iframe-sandbox-allow-top-navigation-by-user-activation), this new flag requires top-level browsing context navigation from a sandboxed iframe only through gesture. This prevents malicious auto-redirection from 3rd party content while still allowing top-level navigation
